is that they tried to make ronald reagan look like the devil. that he was going to start a war, that the economy would be even worse. when the people saw him in that debate, they said oh, i don't believe what these guys are saying about him. he seems to be a nice, reasonable guy who is making a clear statement based on what appeared to be the facts. and all the charges made against him don't seem to be true. neil: this is not a one-shot deal. jimmy carter didn't get a chance for another debate. folks were of the notion that he was a little serious. there are a couple of more debates. one for the vice president. there is time for them to make up ground to the argument. >> if the president can prove that the fact that he comes out with when he speaks among his friends, which i don't think he can. again, even the people that they say verify the facts are saying that the facts are being misused. >> where is mitt romney coming from? >> i think the independent. >> i have another crazy point. i think people who give lukewarm support for the president because they didn't trust what they were hearing few

, i think there's a very strong majority of the american people who still believe that in ronald reagan's approach through peace through strength. that a strong america is what dissuaded them from attacking our interest. i think that president obama has exactly the opposite point of view. he believes that american strength is provocative. he's one of those people that jean kirkpatrick called a blame america first democrat and thinks if america is more retiring from the world, seeing that the rest of the world will treat us better. i think that's totally divorced from reality. >> kelly: you know, we're talking about issues as relates to benghazi, libya, but there's also iran and syria and also the entire middle east. looking ahead, what do you anticipate from a possible romney presidency with regard to dealing with those particular situations and even israel? >> well, i think the reverse of the president's view of the world is, it's not american strength that's provocative. it's american weakness that's provocative. i think a lot of our adversaries, internationally have looked at
they will have as much as ronald reagan did, he's going to do bet. >> i felt that for a long time. >> well, the wives of course in in race have high approval rating and favor ann romney and favor michelle obama, the wives are a huge asset. >> and president obama was off the campaign trail yesterday and finally celebrating his wedding anniversary, as you know fell on the night of the debate. so mitt romney was unencumbered on the campaign trail. there was no response that the president could give to anything that mitt romney did. and mitt romney seemed to energize after the debate. >> every year the median income has gone down, 4,300 a family ab with average family income around 50,000 bucks, that hurts. gasoline prices are up twice what they used to be. these are tough years for the middle class and for the poor in america. and if we calculate it, by the way, our unemployment rate in a way that was consistent with the way it was calculated when he came into office, be a different number. if the number of people shall the percentage of the american population in the work force were the same
't have done it? >> ronald reagan once said to support the march of freedom, but we can't determine the pace. the people in the country determine the pace of the march of freedom. it's humorous to suggest we could do this. >> can you make an assertion but no answer. that seemed to happen in that exchan exchange. >> if anyone doubts foreign policy and who advises candidates doesn't matter, they have to watch that video. this is the stakes at hand. there's two ways to look at this, i think. on the policy side governor romney's critiques are wrong. the president has done a remarkable job in terms of getting us out of iraq, setting us up for withdrawal out of afghanistan, killing osama bin laden, dismantling al qaeda. those are incredible accomplishments by my standard. if this was a republican president, i guarantee you republicans would crow about the incredible record. on the other side, i have no idea what the republicans are doing. if they think they will win a foreign he policy debate with the president, they're sorely mistaken. >> the key is the great contrast. many things are st
lost to ronald reagan. why do you, a guy who wasn't conscious at that time, why do you want to make a movie like this? >> it was a great story. for one thing, it's a thriller. it's actually comedy with the hollywood satirea complicated c.i.a. movie, a political movie. and it's all true. >> bill: so you want to make an entertainment though about a serious subject, rescuing americans from a dictatorship, iran. >> i did. the serious aspect was this was a tribute to the folks in our clan did he say tine services and foreign service who are risking their lives over there tragically seeing examples of that very recently. and folks who are -- what they give up to serve us and to serve our country. >> bill: this is a valentine from ben affleck to the intelligence community. the same people who water boarded, the same peter who rendition, what are your liberal friends going to say to you? >> i don't worry too much about what my lib rap friends say. today i made a movie that my friends who are democrats and republicans can both watch. it's not a political movie. >> bill: you didn't in the bac
's writing in addition to that when you're president and this is why ronald reagan losses first debate on why george w. bush lost his first re-election debate. if you are brought, it's arguably longer than that but anybody -- nobody really tells you what to think and he just -- that is way we saw the president physically taken aback as romney went at him. the romney folks, the new months ago that the debate prep would be the manhattan project of their campaign, that was where they were going to flip the switch if that had any possibility and we saw a romney whose family for a long time have been encouraging the campaign, to let him be more of himself, to be less scripted. he resisted that so we saw him all come out. the problem for him now, he has to do it two more times and there are number of countries who will tell you one problem is you only get one speak attack.

, this is biggest singleebate in helping a candidate since ronald reagan. it was one debate, in carter in '76 they proved people were comfortable to him becoming president. less:liz: said no more presidel debates. >> that is right, until 1976, i remember i went did the research, getting ready for 76 debate, i assume like everyone else legend was that kennedy won first debate big and moved polls a lot, he had not, he moved them a few points but he got what i call credibility threshold. the reason that romney is doing so well, not vote numbers alone. he did was, you could see it in cbs poll, their panel of uncommitted voters. liz: the guys and ladies in 40 40 40-yard line. >> yes, 30% said that romneycared about people about them at the beginning of the debate, by the end it was 53, almost doubles, he made hi hims, i am not an ogre, and second he managed to say, i have a vision, my ideas here is my program, president was terrible. liz: here is the problem, we're also seeing al gore who blew a comfortable lead. >> yes, against bush, the debate. with whoever the challenger is, that was two non

the specifics? do you know exactly what you're doing? >> look at what mitt romney -- look at what ronald reagan and tip o'neill did. they worked together out of a framework to lower tax rates and broaden the base and worked together to fix that. what we're saying is here's our framework. lower tax rates 20%. we raise about $1.2 trillion through income taxes. we forego $1.1 trillion in loopholes and deductions. what we're saying is deny those loopholes and deductions to higher income taxpayers so more of their income is taxed which has a broader base of translation so we can lower tax rates across the board. here's why i'm saying this. what we're saying -- >> i hope i get time to respond. >> you'll get time. >> we want to work with the congress on how best to achieve this. that means successful -- >> no specifics again. >> what we're saying is lower tax rates 20%, start with the wealthy. work with congress to do it. >> you guarantee this math will add up. >> six studies have guaranteed -- six studies have verified this would add up. >> vice president biden. >> i'll come back in a second then, ri
